Hello Again!

Hello everyone! I bet you all thought that I had fallen off the face of the earth... But no!!! :)

Things have just been way more crazy than I anticipated. I won't go into details here, but suffice it to say that moving from the city to the country has its own set of problems that I never foresaw!!!!

We had our first country episode tonight. I'm smiling now, but I wasn't when it happened...

I was sitting watching a movie (argh - that's a whole other story) when I started smelling a smell that I can't even describe. The best way is to say that it smelled like some kind of chemical burning. My eyes started watering and my head started hurting. It was awful. I went to the back door and the odor was getting stronger and stronger. It was aw-w-w-w-ful.

It didn't take long and the whole house smelled like it. I went outside and it was worse out there. Then it dawned on me where I have smelled something like it... on the highway...

Well, it seems that a skunk walked past the fence in the yard and the dogs started barking at it. Well, Mr. Skunk did what all good skunks do and sprayed! Best I can tell is that he missed the dogs, but the neighbors will probably never forgive us for this! The smell lingered for about 2 hours outside.

However, when I left home to come to the PD to post this, my house still smelled awful! :(

Since things are beginning to get a little more back to normal, I am hoping to start posting more regularly again. Keep checking back for pictures and projects. ...and more tales of country life!
